After putting in a strong performance at the Auckland Athletics Competition earlier in the term, a small group athletes made their way to Mount Maunganui to represent Saint Kentigern at the North Island Secondary Schools Athletics Championships over the weekend.

It was a fantastic day of competition as our athletes managed to haul in seven medals, including four gold – a proud moment for all, especially for those in first place!

For the third year in a row, Year 13 student, Lisa Putt led the group with the most medals on the day, achieving gold in the Senior Girls Triple Jump, silver in the 4 x 100 Relay and bronze in Long Jump.

Year 11 student, Natalia Rankin-Chitar also performed at her best, claiming gold in the Intermediate Girls Shot Put and Discus. Year 9 student, Jade Nomani set the bar high and won gold in the Junior Girls High Jump and Year 10 student, Liam McKenzie took home bronze in the Junior Boys 80m Hurdles.
